Try using the correct tool to remove panels...

The screwdriver is not required. Nor is any other tool at that point. GENTLY pull from the tabs where you removed the screws.

The faceplate will begin to loosen from the bottom up. After pulling out a few inches, push back inward about a half of an inch. This has the effect of a teeter/totter on the remaining top wedge pins. Now grasp the two knobs on the bottom of the panel (fan and temp) and loosen first the left side and then the right side. No real force required at any time and practically falls out. NO SCARS on the trim.

cheers,
